Currently the latest ps4 firmware is 8.03 ....and i've just realised i'm on 8.00 ...yet i've been able to access the playstation store, and psnow ...and the amazon app, and my internet browser


but in the past when you were not on the latest firmware you couldn't do any of that until you updated??


Is there something wrong with my ps4 or can anyone on lower firmwares access these now?

A 0.00x patch was likely not significant enough to generate major comparability issues.

so what you're saying is that they only force you to update when a bigger patch comes in?

Pretty much. Like the patch notes in 8.03 are literally adding a voice chat toggle to the Quick Settings menu, that's likely to interfere with anything major in the system.
